In addition to a single-player mode, there is a 'drop in, drop out' two-player co-operative mode allowing a second player to enter or leave the action whenever they want. There is also a free-play mode where unlocked characters can be played in different scenarios to those of the films. This adds immeasurably to the game's replayability and there are further incentives to complete the game for budding Jedi Knights in the form of hidden levels and vehicles.

It manages to combine the authentic feel of the Star Wars universe (a feat not always achieved in previous games) with the inherent comedy and fun of the LEGO universe, without being detrimental to either.
The only possible letdown I can think of is that the main story sections aren't immensely difficult, but this is made largely irrelevant by the HUGE amount of hidden characters, extras (moustaches anyone?), vehicles, stages etc etc that you have to hunt high and low for in order to earn. Also, the obscene amount of fun that I can practically guarantee you will have while playing this game further increases the replayability factor. The LEGO element also means that those who might usually not be interested in such games (girlfriends and younger children, possibly? I don't wish to stereotype, I'm just talking from my personal experience here...) will actually get a great deal of enjoyment from this.
Anyway, to cut a long review short, this is a superb game, full of charm, nifty little ideas (making furniture dance to music with the force is a good one), and enough replayability to make it a worthwhile purchase. Add to that some authentic Star Wars magic and you've got your five stars, baby.
I think it would be fair to say that LSW is aimed at the kids gaming market, but there is a lot for adults to get their teeth into, as minikits can be collected throughout the levels to earn Lego studs (the game's dubiously-named currency), plus if you collect enough studs during a level you can achieve 'True Jedi Status'. Manage that on every level and you unlock a special bonus level at the end of the game. Studs can also be traded for extra characters for you to play with, hints and also cheats - of which invincibility can come in very handy for collecting all the studs you need over the course of the adventure!
Lego Star Wars covers Episodes 1-3 of the Star Wars saga, and very effectively tells the story of each through gameplay and very cute cut scenes. The whole thing is presented in a fairly tongue-in-cheek way, poking gentle fun at the movies and characters. There is no speech really, but the facial expressions of the little Lego characters convey all they need to very well.
The areas of each movie that it uses for action (such as Ep 1's pod race, the fight with Darth Maul, Ep 2's battle through the droid factory, Ep 3's opening space battle) are well thought out. This is not a particularly difficult game, and your character can't die (you just lose studs if your health runs out) so most levels are completed at the first attempt, but you often need to go back to collect extra minikits and studs.Read more ›
I loved it, and my son even had me record him complete the levels, on our new DVD recorder.
Pefect for all kids from 3-80
I would recommend this game to every age.
